Entry Description

The Ndugu Mdogo Rescue Centre is an initiative at Nairobi’s Kibera slum (Kenya), where Koinonia social workers initiate the rehabilitation process through street activities. Kibera is considered sub-Saharan Africa’s largest slum. Operating from a small house in the slum, the Koinonia social workers identify children living on the street, and proceed to organize street activities with them as a prelude to a fostering process that gradually integrates them into sound members of the society. My biggest impression when visiting the center were the faces of innocence, purity kids. The kids do not care about poverty, they just like playing. They made me reminiscent of my childhood poverty.
